Poised to Eat


My topic was picked for Illustration Friday! 
Hooray! Yippee! Wahoo! The word of the week: poise. 
I think I.F. is a great exercise if you are feeling stuck or just want to stretch your imagination.
This stout caterpillar is oh so hungry and is poised to eat a very very big meal.
Ironically, when a great big, juicy green leaf is at hand, 
caterpillars hardly have any composure or poise at all.
When it comes to food, these leaf miners will stop at nothing.
He's going to be one fat butterfly!
